Re: [IP] Bayer Elite XL glucometer problems.



I had a patient that had problems during his initail training.  The educator
supplied the family with generic strips for the Elite.  Once we switched him
to the brand name strips the problem disappeared.  I have used my Elite XL
for 18 months and have not had any problems.
